If  a  P3DM  training  has  an  end,  P3DM  activities  do  not.  It  is  indeed  one strength  of  P3DM  to  enable  permanent  and  detailed  updating  of  the  3D map. Pushpins and yarns are easily movable and replaceable should need arises while a certain paint may be covered by other colors. For example, if a woman gives birth, the pushpin which indicated that she was pregnant should be replaced by the pushpin showing that there is a young child in the household. Such a fine-tuned updating of the 3D map on a regular basis enables the upgrading of the disaster risk assessment and lingering action plan on a continuous basis. In time of disaster updated information proves to be crucial.

Updating the 3D map may take place on a continuous basis or at regular schedules agreed upon by the community. In the first case, the stakeholder in charge of looking after the 3D map takes charge of updating the data and eventually have it validated by the larger community, for example during community meetings.

In the second case scenario, regular meetings, e.g. quarterly or yearly, are organized with the participants who built the 3D map. They should gather during a day or two to update the entire data at once (Figure 70).

Associated  data,  such  as  the  household  data  sheets,  the  disaster  risk assessment table and DRR plans must be updated simultaneously.
